I'm sorry my northern hemisphere friends have to hear this, because it seems like you guys are having a pretty average spring, but.....our autumn down here has been freaking amazing. I think its the best autumn I've had since I've lived in Wellington. It's cooler and the days are shorter but we seem to have had sunny day after sunny day and so many blue skies! Normally this time I year I need to wear my woolen coat EVERYWHERE! But I haven't been wearing it to work at ALL this week - where do I even LIVE now?
ANZAC day is always held on the 25 April as its the day the ANZAC troops landed on the Gallipoli Peninsular in 1915.
Given that it was ANZAC weekend Rich and I thought it was finally time we visited the Ataturk Memorial on the South Coast of Wellington.
NZ History website and it's pretty authoritative on such things.
